Michelle Obama has been trending this week – or at least, her natural hair has. Click here to see what we are talking about if you didn’t know already.
Social media was ablaze with praise for the former First Lady’s hair, as she seemed to embrace her natural curls while on holiday. Who knew something so simple would get so much attention?
“She just got back from vacation on Friday, but that is her, and it is recent,” her hairstylist Johnny Wright confirmed after people started doubting whether the pictures were in fact of Michelle Obama or a cheeky imposter.
“She actually had a blow dry straight before she left for vacation,” he added. “I guess she got in the water or something. People want a more sexy answer, but that’s really what it is.”
And although this might be the first time we have seen Michelle’s hair looking so free and so natural, Johnny Wright confirmed that she is actually quite fond of the natural look…
“She’s always embraced her natural hair,” he said. “For the looks she was going for and the stories she wanted to tell, I styled her hair straight.
“There wasn’t any lack of embracing her curls. It’s just what she wanted to do.
“I do think that a woman of her complexion, with her figure and her hair texture, has given a whole lot of other women a chance to look in the mirror and say, ‘I am beautiful, too’ because I have somebody representing me.”
Is anyone else about to throw their hair straighteners in the trash right now?
